Short Description

Reclaim your strength.

With the market launch of the Genium leg prosthesis, Ottobock opened up entirely new horizons for prosthesis wearers: a nearly natural gait pattern, climbing stairs step-over-step, walking backwards, relaxed standing – to name just a few examples. The benefits of being fitted with a Genium have been scientifically proven in multiple studies.

The Genium has been enhanced based on human movement as the model. The result is a noticeably smoother gait and even better support and safety in everyday situations, for instance on ramps, in confined spaces or when changing walking speeds. Five individually selectable MyModes support special movement patterns at work or play. 

The Genium can be configured with the Cockpit app, which is now available not only for Android but Apple (iOS) devices as well.

Benefits at a glance01

Free your mind

Thanks to the newly updated, unique technology, the Genium enables a gait that’s even more natural. Added support is provided by adjustment possibilities that can make walking on ramps or sitting down easier.

An excellent long-term fitting

Additional functions can help adapt the prosthesis to your everyday life. The stairs and obstacles function provides useful day-to-day assistance. It lets you walk up stairs leg-over-leg or overcome obstacles such as curbs.


We responded to your requests for improved protection against water and upgraded the Genium to an IP 67 rating. As a result, the Genium can now be exposed to brief rain showers or come into contact with splashed water.

Relaxed standing

The Genium features two different stance functions that permit resting on the prosthetic. The result is continual relief for the sound side. Bilateral patients benefit from this function as well.

Selecting your prosthesis settings

The option of having up to five MyModes programmed for special activities lets you adapt your prosthesis even better to your everyday life. The new Genium offers an even larger selection of options for individual modes.

Simple control on the go: the Cockpit app

With the Cockpit app 2.0 for Apple and Android devices, you can easily and conveniently configure the new Genium yourself. Whether you want to check the battery charge level, select a MyMode or change the volume, it’s all right there on your smartphone or tablet.

Smart app control

Thanks to integrated Bluetooth®, the Genium can also be controlled with an app. Additional movement patterns are stored as MyModes and can be very easily selected using the corresponding app. Mute mode can be selected via the app as well and is ideal when visiting the cinema or theatre, for example. The battery charge level can also be checked in no time using the Cockpit app, which is available for the new Genium on both Android and Apple (iOS) devices.

Unique technology at the heart of your mobility

The Genium’s introduction in 2011 represented a breakthrough in knee joint technology – but it didnt’ stop there. Every step of the Genium’s development has pushed the limits of technology further with the goal of coming even closer to the natural model. Years of research and development work have resulted in the Genium as we know it today. Movements are calculated with incomparable accuracy and triggered in real time.

Movement calculation with real-time response

The technology recognises whether the patient is on uneven terrain or inclines and whether they are changing speeds. Studies have proven the long-term health benefits of the targeted relief it provides for the sound side. Compensating movements are reduced. Thanks to the Genium’s intuitive use, patients benefit from being able to focus their attention on the important things in life, rather than having to think about every step.
